Hello, my name is Helena Kung and I am a Registered Acupuncturist (R.Ac) with the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists of Ontario (CTCMPAO).
My exposure to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) began when I was a young child. I grew up in a Chinese family with three siblings and the elders in our home often treated our childhood ailments from tonsilitis to stomach aches using traditional Chinese remedies.
After graduating from university, I started working in the field of child welfare. In my free time I was always interested in learning about alternative health and wellness. I decided to enroll in an introductory course in TCM because I wanted to learn natural ways of coping with stress and healing the body. I fell in love with its philosopy and decided to change my career path. In 2017, I earned my Diploma of Acupuncture and graduated with High Honours from AIM Academy (Acupuncture and Integrative Medicine) in Toronto, Ontario.
I am excited to be part of the team at Grimsby Massage Therapy Clinic, a wellness clinic that shares my passion for preventative health. Our daily lives can be very overwhelming, hectic, and stressful. My focus is on using ancient therapies to help the body achieve optimal health, so that it can live in harmony with the modern world.
